    Likely Tri-X, but not today's Tri-X. But it could have been any of several other Kodak or other films, none of which are now available. And it really matters only a tiny bit: why obsess over film when there are also hundreds of processing options, at least tens of printing papers and hundreds of options for processing the paper? It was just film: the start of the process. – user82065 Jun 5 '19 at 20:23
  • @MichaelC it wasn't intended as an answer: I have no idea what film he used, but am just guessing since Tri-X was/is common, & then trying to point out that the question is really meaningless. Sorry, I should have made that more clear: do you want me to add an answer saying that more explicitly? I think that would be a bad answer but I'm willing to be wrong! – user82065 Jun 6 '19 at 9:22
